"White Boy Blues" as written by and Nugent....
Last night an old friend came knocking on my door
I let him in, let him sleep on my floor
He spoke to me in a voice I'd known long before
Baking soda and tin foil to purify his score
Sing the song now

Yeah-ha
Yeah
Yeah-ha
Yeah

Last night death came swinging down from the moon
Drinking Argentine wine with a black attitude
Saying reality is the baggage, the airport is truth
He asked for one cigarette, you gave him two

And I try so hard just to get to you
But I'm surrounded by midnight singing these two white boy blues

I said you must leave take your mirror and your straw
If you're too tired to walk, baby, you can always crawl
In your desperate moments, in your bathroom stall
Take your Andy Warhol, it's getting close to dawn

Yeah-ha
Yeah
Yeah-ha
Yeah

Youth lost me running through the fields
She caught me off guard, baby, she caught me by the heels
A child of nature does not know how to feel
We know what she bought but, baby, what did she steal?

And I try so hard just to get to you
But I'm surrounded by midnight singing these two white boy blues

I drove into Cassie
With all my might
In a van bound for Dakota at Christmas time
I knew her in Havre, everything was fine
By the time we hit Glasgow, baby we were in a fight

Yeah-ha
Yeah
Yeah-ha
Yeah

Yesterday was Tuesday, Diana knows it so well
From the trailer park to the ghetto to the wishing well
We pray for our lady welfare, deliver us from Hell
Jerk off the movie usher, sound the fire bell

And I try so hard just to get to you
But I'm surrounded by midnight singing these white boy blues

Last night an old friend came knocking on my door
He was dressed in ribbons from the Persian Gulf war
He spoke to me in a voice I've known long before
I said the man you once knew don't live here anymore
I said the man you once knew don't live here anymore
I said the man you once knew don't live here anymore
[screaming] I said the man you once knew don't live here anymore
